enough to fill properly and so they have diastolic heart failure as it impairs diastolic function. Non
compliant rigid ventricles that impairs diastolic filling. Decreased CO and left sided HF can result
Thickened hyperkinetic ventricular muscle mass. The septum often effected and being so thickened will disrupt blood flow.
You see the dilation of one or both V’s, may be related to alcohol toxicity, pregnancy,
postviral myocarditis, or genetic abnormality. Can slowly progress from one ventricular failing to biventricular
failure with low EF (<40%
